Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours gold/amber and clear, light but steady carbo, looks like a lager, very little head. On the nose orange, perfume, its almost like a wine. apricot fruits come through, big citrus in general on the nose, also a little grapefruit. Big grapefruit bitterness on the palate, a little one note on the tongue, bitter all the way, could do with something to break it up.

Cask at Earl of Essex, Islington. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity with funky earthy veg. Medium body mild carbonation. It's fusty, grassy, a bit of melon, grapefruit, ash. Nice bitter finish. Slightly unusual, but tasty enough. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
